Don't believe me? Call in and ask yourself. I had a buddy who lived right next to me who was watching the game the same time I was like, his feed was more than 10 seconds delayed than the Shaw feed.

Certainly their promos are better, but than again I hate contracts so Telus can suck my left nut. Plus they're bleeding money in their TV dept.
Lots of misinformation here.

The TV feed delay has nothing to do with bandwidth sharing between services.

You don't need to sign a long contract, unless you want the high-end freebies like a tv or tablet etc.

Their TV dept is not bleeding money. It is however taking loads of customers away from Shaw.
